Sundays and Pumpkin Pancakes

The whole world is now like a Sunday morning. Everyone wakes up and knows they have plenty of time to spend at home. Sleeping without snoozing the alarm, being absolutely lazy and visiting every couch one by one for the rest of the day. No need to hurry. No need to dress up and go out. Because that’s what Sundays are for.

Sundays are also for extending breakfasts and enjoying them. Whether it’s a crowded family brunch or a self-breakfast in bed, pancake is a perfect fit to a Sunday morning. Especially if it’s a healthy, low-calorie one that helps you to feel less guilty when you eat too much of them.

It’s a brand new day, sun is shining. Let’s make this Sunday a pan-day. 

Here comes the recipe.


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • Butter for cooking
    To serve: tahini, walnuts


2-4 Servings / 12 Pancakes / Time: 20 min

*Cup here refers about 250 ml*

  1. Crack eggs into a bowl and whisk.
  2. Add pumpkin puree and milk. Stir together.
  3. Combine the mixture with flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
    (If the texture wouldn’t be thin/thick enough for you, add more milk/flour.)
  4. Heat the pan over medium heat and coat with butter. Scoop the pancake batter onto the pan and cook both sides until brown.
  5. Serve with tahini on top, also adding some walnuts to your plate. 

Pancakes are great. They are fluffy and lovely. I recently found out that William Shakespeare, one of my favorite writers, also loved pancakes and mentioned in his plays. 

So let me drop a little advice here, if you are up to read today. You can read “As You Like It” by Shakespeare and maybe enjoy your Sunday even more. 

Or you can spend the day in other ways, you know, as you like it.

Stay appetent, stay home.
